Robin Brooks at The Beauty of Books loved working with Iris Ruth Pastor on her book cover for The Secret Life of a Weight-Obsessed Woman: Wisdom to live the life you crave, as well as the earlier rendition Tales of a Bulimic Babe: Simple wisdom to live the life you crave.
(It's a long story as to why there was a need for a new title and cover. Suffice it to say that, after much deliberation among many, this was the decision reached for this commercial book.)
The Secret Life... is about a woman who apparently “has it all”—a happy marriage, five well-adjusted sons, a stimulating career, lots of friends and extended family. But what Iris kept hidden from them all was her addiction to a “lover” she called ED—her eating disorder. This is the story of her shedding that secret, facing and owning her addiction, and taking courageous steps to break free of the disorder that ruled her life.
If you’ve ever grappled with something that prevents you from operating at full throttle, Iris’s brutally honest yet witty and inspirational story answers the tough questions, while reminding us that the possibility of recovery is within our reach.
Iris was a Huffington Post “Must-Read Blogger of 2015,” publishes a weekly newsletter through her website, and travels the country talking to live audiences about the importance of “Preserving Your Bloom,” using your talents and resources to be the best you can be.
The Secret Life of a Weight-Obsessed Woman will have its formal release in January, 2018. In December, you'll be able to pre-order it on Amazon and through bookstores near you. (6 x 9”)
The design for Tales... presented a challenge to Robin. It was outside of her usual design sensibilities. However, facing these kinds of challenges is what makes Robin grow and thrive.
When it came to the brand new design for the re-titled The Secret Life..., Robin's experience designing Tales... brought new expertise and capabilities to her design process. She had such fun coming up with this concept and design!
